without a rational basis and places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion. the judge also ruled that restrictions on abortion medications can be unconstitutional, but only if they stop a doctor from prescribing them to protect the life or health of a woman. >> an this bill is an example. >> reporter: the fight over the restrictions drew national attention this summer when democratic state senator wendy davis stood for 13 hours in a filibuster against them in june. the measures ultimately passed. the state has already appealed this decision. and state officials say they believe this case will ultimately be decided at the appellate level or even at the u.s. supreme court. anna werner, cbs news, dallas. chinese officials expect that an incident in beijing's tiananmen square was a suicide attack. five people were killed. and at least 38 people injured when a car slammed into a crowd monday. chinese officials are looking for two suspects but haven't
